Masaka Baptist College
Masaka Baptist College teaches a wide range of practical subjects including Christian Home, Christian Leadership, Christian Finances, Philosophy of Christian Education, and Baptist Distinctives. By the end of the course, students have completed a verse by verse study of the entire New Testament. These students graduate with a very good working knowledge of the Bible and an ability to preach and teach the truth taught to them (II Timothy 2:2).
Currently Masaka Baptist College has thirteen students enrolled. The Bible makes plain the truth that the laborers are few. Please pray that God will send students with a teachable spirit that may be trained to go out and preach the gospel of our Lord Jesus Christ.
Internet Radio Ministry
In April of 2021 the Stensaas were able to partner with Bible Radio Network in Greenville, SC, USA in order to reach not only people throughout Uganda, but Ugandans throughout the world with the gospel of Jesus Christ. Broadcasting from Greenville, SC, our online radio is called Uganda Baptist Radio and can be accessed by clicking ugandabaptistradio.com. Although the internet is relatively new to many in Uganda, it is developing and many people are gaining access to the internet through their smart phones or computers. It is definitely the future for radio.
I truly know what Paul had in his heart when he told the Philippians, “Not because I desire a gift: but I desire fruit that may abound to your account.” Christian internet radio takes a lot of time and work, and there is no monetary income in this type of ministry. However, it is worth it to see one more soul come to know Christ through this ministry. Would you pray about helping us financially? Would you add Uganda Baptist Radio to your prayer list and pray for us every day? I know that you will see fruit on your account in heaven.

Starting churches out of other churches is the natural, biblical way to continue the propagation of Christianity and the church. Since 1997 we have had the opportunity of seeing eleven existing churches established. Please pray for these churches and their individual specific needs.

Tri-Annual Bible Institute
The Tri-annual Bible Institute (TBI) is a Bible Institute designed for pastors and church leaders who are not able to come to regular classes at Masaka Baptist College. TBI is held three times a year during the school break and is designed to teach the men eight hours a day, Monday thru Friday. Because of where these men are in the village, this type of setup is very conducive to their schedule. We feed them, house them, and provide them with the books they need for the course. They are responsible to provide their transport to and from the Institute. In our first TBI in August of 2012 we had eighteen men from ten different churches that have either been out of Masaka Independent Baptist Church or who have come to us for assistance in helping them get churches started. Since that first TBI we have grown to having 65 men from 11 different churches in addition to starting another TBI in northeastern Uganda with another 50 men.
If you would like to give towards this ministry in the training of men of God for the ministry, please send your gifts to BIMI account #793
and earmark it: TBI. These gifts will go towards providing for these men when they come. Please pray for our next TBI that will be August, 2015.
Village Mentorship & Assistance Ministry
This ministry involves myself and my team spending up to three days a week in one of the above churches helping the church leadership with evangelism, discipleship, open air meetings, medical clinics, counseling, church planting, etc. This ministry is going to expand our church planting goals and will truly make an impact on Uganda for Christ. Please pray about the needs that we have in starting this new ministry. The truck pictured above is a tremendous God-given asset to this ministry. It enables us to be able to carry tents, chairs, medical supplies, sound equipment, food, literature, and will be the living quarters for our team while we are in the village. God has also provided the chairs and sound equipment. God has also given me Brother Kizza Jovin and Brother Bwambale Robert (pictured above) to partner with me in this ministry. VMAM will consume a lot of time and energy, but I believe it will bring fruit and glory to God!!
